A lot of people are expecting a one-world government, but I think what were going to get instead is just a one-world currency. No need for one government if you can control everything with one currency. Think about it... The Euro has yet to be adopted by the British people, who so far refuse to give up their precious pound. So, to get the whole world to accept a new currency, why not debase the value of all existing currencies so far down that people we will be happy to accept a new currency that does have some exchange value?

seems the plan is to crash the system and pick up all the pieces at firesale prices.
when you are as wealthy as the fed bankers, the goal isnt money anymore, its power.
We are still in the earliest stages of an economic and financial collapse, which was deliberately engineered to bring about eventual total control of our economy and financial system. Except for government and the Fed, Wall Street finance has been incapacitated. The government and the Fed are left to do as they please. Our bought and paid for Congress will rubber stamp anything handed to them. Bank credit will surpass $1 trillion this year to keep the elitist banks solvent and to delay the forces of deflation and depression. Overall credit expansion will expand to $2 trillion plus as many more banks, brokerage houses, lenders, insurance companies and illuminist corporate giants are served up all the cash and credit they need to survive. Very little will ever be paid back. Once the grip of the Fed and our Treasury is complete it will be almost their sole responsibility to extend credit. The excuse will be it has to be done to save the system as they chip you and give you a debit card and set up currency and exchange controls, devalue the dollar and institute wage and price controls. We then become wards of the state. They have allowed the banks to get into such awful shape, that they will tell you that they and America have no other option but to have government and the Fed mandate what will be done to save the system.

Well Im going to show you something that is going to knock your socks off. If you think YOU are the only person who thinks the BOE is the man behind the curtain you are wrong. A congressman by the name of Louis Thomas McFadden thought the same thing. He even held hearings. Read these two links and enjoy. It makes your case for you plain as day. He was killed after 3 assassination attempts.

Have they given up the notion of borrowing money from China that we must repay with interest? Is this real money or digits on a computer? There is not the slightest chance this money will ever be repaid let alone the interest so what is it that china owns, literally owns--our government? the stock the government has scooped up from the banks and automakers? the land under our feet? or doesn't china expect collateral for loans?
